Try mixing about 1/4 cranberry juice
cocktail with a decent beer - they do that
a lot in Germany and Belgium, so it's
kosher. And it gets rid of the bitter edge
in beer.<P>I don't think that's called a lambic, which
they also do in Belgium, but I think the fruit
juice has to be brewed in. It might be a
shandygaff, but that might be specifically
lemonade and beer.<P>I like beer.<P>------------------

Herewith the inherent disadvantage of message boards: you can't tell in what spirit (ho ho) someone's comments are meant. At least not without resort to horrible things like <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/biggrin.gif"> and <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/cool.gif">. 'I KILLED JFK WITH BIG CLUBS <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/wink.gif">' just doesn't have the same subtlety of humour.<P>(Except <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/frown.gif">, of course. That's fantastic.)<P>And Bailey's is fantastic. Ooh! and slivovice: 60% proof Czech plum brandy, which is surprisingly nice. So maybe it's just the bitterness which puts me off.<P>------------------

I like beer that's thick and black and foamy and has little chunks of bark and stuff floating in it and tastes like it came from inside an engine.<P>Beck's Dark is my favorite. A true black & tan (not the stuff from a bottle--the stuff where you pour half of each from the tap, and you can actually see them separate in your pilsner) is good, too.<P>Does anybody else put pepper in their dark beer?<P>------------------

There's a local bar in Lennoxville, the Lion, that makes a pretty good pale ale. But I'm more a red wine man. Hey, I live in Quebec, so I'm like French by association, right?<P><P>------------------
